One Man's Opinion
- By stivers v«‘|‘"“n
AN Associated Press dispatch from Astoria
divulges the startling news that two under
takers are engaged in a price war to obtain the
contract to handle charity burials in Clatsop
county. The figure, after holding at thirty-five
dollars for some years, suddenly under the in
fluence of competition, took a drop to fifteen.
Thence in succeeding years it dropped to five
| dollars, one-tenth of one mill and finally the
contract was awarded to the undertaking house
which bid “no fee.’
A bit startling, isn't it? Why in the name of
all that’s holy, should an undertaker find it to his
advantage to bury a county charge for absolutely
nothing? On the face of it, the whole business
looks extremely silly, much as though two under
takers actuated by an overly acute sense of pride,
were simply cutting one another’s throats for the
fun of it. More particularly,' it. has an incongru
ous appearance since we learned that the fee for
burial of county charges in Lane county is fifty
However, every business has its angles and
every angle has its possibilities for making a
spare nickel or dime. Our curiosity quite got the
better of us in this matter and we could not
resist the temptation to get in touch with Lane
county coroner, Charles P. Poole, to find out just
what was the angle that made the rival concerns
in Astoria so eager to land the contract. It. sounds
fantastic but here’s what he told us:
The landing of the contract automatically
gives I tie undertaker the responsibility of burying,
upon their demise, any of the inhabitants of the
county poor farm oi other county maintained in
stitutions. As a general thing this job is good
only for the amount of the pie-determined fee.
(In the case of Clatsop county, there is no fee.)
However, once in awhile more frequently than
one would guess it happens that one of the erst
while residents of the poor farm turns out to have
a goodly pile salted down somewhere but for
reasons best known to himself chose to go on
the county rather than to spend it on the every
day necessities of life. Under these circumstances
he is no longer a charity burial ease and the un
dertaker has his chance to sock up a nice little
burial fee against the estate.
Pretty cute, isn’t it ? We asked Mr. Poole if
these instances were frequent enough to make the
contract a paying proposition. 11 is answer was
that no undertaker could make big money at it
but to supplement a regular business it usually
provided black figures to add to the ledger at the
end of the year. In other words, the number of
1 eases in which there is a nice little slice of change
j more than of sets those which are a total loss.
All of which just goes to prove that its the
little things that count, whether it is in selling
groceries or caskets. Really, its too bad. We had
such a high opinion of those two morticians in
Astoria. They appeared to be such high minded
philanthropists. Now we know they are just good,
hard-headed business men.

A s nappy ..nd intelligent presen
tation of campus news and campus
th'right of the past week will be
delivered by the ‘‘This Is News"
crew on the Emerald broadcast to
day at 4:15 over KORE. Jane La
gasses and Stan Bromberg will
take part. Well meaning clitics
have submitted in a friendly man
ner the suggestion that since no
; last minute news is dispensed on
this program, its value as a news
1 feature is let:: ened. Oar reply is
that in the first place news proper
occupies only a small part of th ■
fifteen minutes; in the second
place, most of the campus news is,
news to those off the campus. And
i we feel that the feature articles
1 and editorials read over the air are
of honest worth and that .they
merit being broadcast. The pro

| t ion of Emeralds of the past week.
Fourteen editors of college news
papers, will give a summary of

"Limehouse Blues" with George
Raft and Jean Parker fails com
pletely to establish the atmosphere
that reputedly surrounds the Lon

much individuality as a sweet girl

mistake by not showing off tlie
dancing prowess that made Bolero

that dancing partner, Wong has
only one wiggle to her repertoire.
The atmosphere was conscien
